I will probably never find myself decorating a room in all out bohemian style, but there are definitely aspects of this design style that I love. The boho style is all about rich colors, mixed textures and a love for bold patterns. It is a relaxed “anything goes” style where random objects and patterns are mixed and matched to create an eclectic and chaotic style. It is creative and whimsical which I love. When I come across a picture of a room done in the boho style, my senses go into overdrive. My eyes fly around the space, trying to soak in every detail. That is how powerful it is.
Boho with a modern twist. Love the colors and patterns mixed with the straight lines.
Boho Chic: A more sophisticated and glamorous boho style.
I like the mixture of pillows on the floor. It brings a lot of pattern to a fairly solid and neutral room.
I am all about the fur chairs!
Anthropologie is a great place to buy boho furniture, home decor and clothing.
Again love the neutral mixed with pattern.
Here are some of my favorite rooms I have come across in the past few days. I love bright colors against a neutral white background. I am working on implementing this concept in the living room. Since we can’t paint the walls, it means we have to be creative with our decor. Finding a good balance of neutrals with bright pops of yellow, turquoise, orange and pink is the way to go!
I have been at a loss as to what to put in our small little entry area. I have tried my antique desk in front of the angled window but it soaked up too much of the sunlight that filters through. I tried Michael’s blue gray bedside table in that space, but that didn’t seem to fit the space either. Finally, I broke down and went to Homestead Hand Crafts to look for a small little side table, and this is what I found! I love that it is cream and has open shelves to hold books and random objects. It fits the space perfectly!
The master bedroom might be my favorite room in our house. When you walk in, it has a soft and serene effect. My goal with this room was to make it feminine farmhouse style mixed with a few shabby chic touches. In our last apartment, the pew bench had to be outside on our porch since we didn’t have room. So I was so excited to find a place for it in our new house. I will give Michael credit for this; he was the first to suggest it at the end of our bed. I haven’t adorned the walls too much in this room. I am trying to embrace the “less is more” concept in this new house. I also love having the little chandelier in the corner to dress up the space. It gives it a romantic touch to the room.
I love design, decorating, cooking and DIY projects. My style is a mixture of cottage and shabby chic style with industrial and eclectic elements. Check out my LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/in/aliciaholdridge) for examples of my professional and student portfolio. [...]read full page
